As we all know, good things always come to an end. As they say: "Let's say goodbye to the old and make room for the new". Over the course of the last three years, we have been hearing rumors and reading some contradicting news about the possibility that BMW's M3 line will be renamed M4 and that the new generation of these automobiles will be fitted with a twin-turbo
six-cylinder engine with an output of 450
horsepower. Even though, all this has not been officially confirmed by BMW, what we do know is that the roomy four-door M3 Saloon is now long gone —it doesn't even appear on BMW's website anymore.
Some time not long ago, we had the pleasure of meeting with one of our close watchlifestyler friends and take a close look at this wonderful machine that you can't buy brand new anymore. This time, the watch on the wrist an Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Diver that we have decided to name the 'fancy car magnet' a few stories ago. The more we look at our pictures, the more we confirm that no other watch could've looked any better inside this gorgeous automobile. A match made in heaven.
The BMW M3 was launched in 1986 based off the 3-series line as the E30 and since then, it's been absolute synonym of performance, speed and comfort among automobile enthusiasts and BMW aficionados.
The 4th generation M3 Saloon four-door was presented as a concept car at the 2007
Geneva Auto Show. This powerful car featuring a
BMW S65 V8 engine boosts 420 hp capable of getting from 0-60mph in just 4.9 seconds. Driving this car is a true pleasure and an exhilarating experience. Its lines, engine roar and driveability are unparalleled.
The BMW E90 M3 Saloon four-door is a car that was designed with one goal in mind: speed with uncompromised comfort. The look of the car is very masculine, powerful and quite sporty. This amazing machine comes with 19-inch wheels and 265 tires on the back in order to keep proper control and stability of the powerful rear-wheel drive. One of the greatest advantages of the E90 M3 Saloon over the M3 Coupé, is that you don't need to lose engine power in exchange for more room. This car is almost as powerful as the coupé but rear passengers won't feel cramped up in the back. Just as with any other BMW, the interior is very nicely done, spacious and features the traditional M-line touches with a carbon fiber trim that adds a sportier look to the interior of the vehicle.
Now the really sad part of this story is that if you want one of these cars to go with that Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Diver, you'll have to settle for a pre-loved example of it. Certified Pre-Owned Sticker Price approximately $48,000-52,000 USD. For more info click here.
